Sonic Triptych (2002)
Sonic Triptych I was a composition for nine individuals that used the formal element of a triptych to structure sonic portraits. One to three minute simultaneous performances by three groups were interwoven in three sets like a round, with participants using any instruments or sound based actions of their choice as self representation. The composition allowed for freedom within certain parameters, as a means for facilitating participatory and collaborative action.
